Well you have to be in the present moment. You can’t turn back time. The past is history, the future is a mystery! Today’s a gift, that’s why they call it the present.”

Following the interview, Tranmere Rovers shared their manager’s words on social media with the caption:

Some #WednesdayWisdom from the gaffer!”

However, what caught the attention of viewers was that Adkins’ post-match comments were extremely similar with some notable lines from the popular animated movie Kung Fu Panda 2. In particular, he sounded like Grand Master Oogway in a scene where he was trying to comfort the main character Po. Oogway said the following lines:
